iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear nucleare on iran's weapons program. [applause] red lines do not lead to war. they prevent war. look at nato's charter. it made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all. new's redlined helps keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century -- red lines have helped keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century. and help preserve the peace for decades. it is the failure to place red lines that has often invited aggression. if it were drawn in the 1930 baltimore, world war ii might the been avoided -- 1930's, world war ii might have been avoided. the first gulf war might have been avoided. clear, red lines will also work with iran. earlier this year, they threatened to close the strait. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed

and politics in the persian gulf. and really focus on the prominence of this area and the energy market. the persian gulf area as 60% of the world's proven oil reserves. and 40% of the world's proven gas reserves. in fact, six of the top 40 in the countries in terms of proven oil reserves are and the gulf. five of the country's top oil producers are also located there as well. the added states foreign policy, toward the persian gulf, has focused on ensuring the free flow of oil from the gulf to global markets. and opposing the nomination of that area. traditionally, the soviet union, but in recent decades, iraq under saddam hussein. this has embroiled us and two wars. and lead to a significant military, a commitment of military assets in the area. the question arises regionwide is the united states extended such efforts and so much of its assets? when we are a number three oil producer in the world. and we import less than 20% of our crude imports from the gulf. these are the issues we will explore today. is the global energy marketplace changing? is the persian off oil and gas still im

the big problems in this country. no. 1, we have so much energy in this country. let's get that energy in this country, create jobs. that will build prosperity. oil, gas, coal, nuclear, renewables, all of the above. the obama administration is standing in a way of what could be a promising explosion of energy. we have so much oil and gas because of new technology that we know how to get without harming the environment. this puts people to work and creates manufacturing jobs. it lowers gas prices. it lowers the cost to heat your home in the winter, to cool it in the summer, the electricity we pay. that means your paycheck goes farther. people living on fixed income have more income to live on. this is important. with an energy policy like the keystone pipeline, opening our land for development, we can stop sending our money to the middle east. it helps our economy and paychecks. [applause] another area -- we have all these people in between jobs. for every person who got a job last month, nearly four people stopped looking for a job. we are slipping behind. what we see when we look at t

with countries around the world to deepen ties of trade and investment, and science and technology, energy and development -- all efforts that can spark economic growth for all our people and stabilize democratic change. but such efforts depend on a spirit of mutual interest and mutual respect. no government or company, no school or ngo will be confident working in a country where its people are endangered. for partnerships to be effective our citizens must be secure and our efforts must be welcomed. a politics based only on anger -- one based on dividing the world between "us" and "them" -- not only sets back international cooperation, it ultimately undermines those who tolerate it. all of us have an interest in standing up to these forces. let us remember that muslims have suffered the most at the hands of extremism. on the same day our civilians were killed in benghazi, a turkish police officer was murdered in istanbul only days before his wedding. more than 10 yemenis were killed in a car bomb in sana'a. several afghan children were mourned by their parents just days after they were ki

level. let's get some more questions. 1, 2, and 3 back there. >> michael from the department of energy. i am curious as to your perspective about how likely it is the tensions you describe are likely to affect oil production in the near term, whether it is through outright destruction -- destruction or deterring foreign investment. thank you. >> the gentleman with the blue shirt. sorry about that. i did not see the person in the back. >> my question is more directed to mr. frederic. seeing similar dynamics in the yemen with regard to competing militias, the lack of a central government control, what type of lessons are we learning from these states and also, with these type of dynamics, how can the u.s. be supportive in their transitions? >> let's take a third one. the person in the back than i could not see that i interrupted. >> my name is robert. we have seen a number of american companies who are chomping at the bit to look at the opportunities and libya. all of the sector's need to be brought up to date. given the fact several of you have been there recently, from the perspective

iraq from becoming a nuclear weapons power, and getting the international atomic energy agency to watch the iranians and make sure they don't go beyond what they should be doing in the enrichment of uranium. the president has put in place very tough sanctions, the toughest ever put in place against iran -- president obama has done that -- and he has reserved the right at the end of the date for the united states foto use force, but he is putting that off for diplomacy. i worked with president george w. bush and secretary of state condoleezza rice on the iran issue for three years. there is a remarkable similarity between the george w. bush policy on iran and barack obama policy. i get the sense in my discussions with senators and congressmen and women on capitol hill that there is a basic bipartisan support for this policy that the last two american presidents have undertaken. we don't want to go to war right now, we don't want to open up the possibility of a third land war in the middle east after iraq and afghanistan. we want to focus on obama's because that is -- we want to focus on

to really provide stimulus for this economy. we don't have an energy policy and have not had a budget in three years. as a result, businesses are waiting to see and what happens with the election and waiting to see what their lives will look like, the tax rates, regulation, etc. they are upheld by the health care expense, so they're waiting until after the election to decide if they will hire new workers and put new money to work. we really aren't in standstill mode in the u.s. economy right now. caller: another story -- i want to ask you about using the word "brace." guest: i think the president has had an antagonistic relationship with business. i think that's pretty clear. over the last several months he did lose the independent vote and the business vote. if the numbers show that he is actually winning, i could understand that now they are disappointed, because they were counting on some competition. but i don't think you can really tell right now. it's hard to know how accurate the polls are. in some cases i think the media is pulling democrats and other cases people don't necess

the atomic energy commission to watch to make sure they do not go beyond what they should be doing in terms of enrichment. the president has put the toughest sanctions ever in place against iran and he has reserved the right as absolutely necessary at the end of the day for the united states to use force, but he has put that off to focus on diplomacy. what is interesting about this is i work for george w. bush and condoleezza rice on this issue for years. there is a remarkable similarity between these policies and i get this sense in my discussion with senators and congressmen and women on capitol hill that there is a basic bipartisan support for this policy that the last two american presidents have undertaken. we do not want to go to war right now, we do not want to open up the possibility of a third land war. we want to focus on diplomacy in that sense. we also want to be tough, protecting israel and our friends in the arab world. to me, it is a sensible policy and i think we ought to give him the time, or governor romney if he is elected, the time to negotiate with the iranians. we have

on the public reports of the international atomic energy agency. anybody can read them. there online. -- they are online. if these are the facts,, and they are, where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage enrichment necessary to make a bomb, before iran gets to a point where it is a few months away, or a few weeks away, from amassing enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon. each day, that point is getting closer. that is why i speak today with such a sense of urgency. and that is why everyone should have a sense of urgency. there are some who would claim that even if iran complete the enrichment process, even if it crosses that red line that i just got through, our intelligence agencies will know when and where iran will make and assemble a bomb and prepare the warhead. look, no one appreciates our intelligence agencies more than the prime minister of israel. all of these leading intelligence agencies are superb, including ours. they have formed many attacks, save many lives, but they are not foolproof. for
